Location: The Tuli Block, lying in the
remote eastern corner of Botswana, borders Zimbabwe to the north
and South Africa to the south.
Although not as well-known as Botswana's Moremi Game Reserve and
Chobe National Park, the area comprises a diverse wilderness of
savannah, riverine forests, marshland, open plains and rocky outrops.
Wildlife is abundant, including large herds of elephant. Predators
such as lion, leopard, cheetah, and hyena are attracted by the wildebeest,
kudu, eland, and impala that migrate through the area. For bird-watchers,
there are more than 350 species of birds in the area.
